Pretty good app, but still needs improvement.
I really enjoy that our school has an app to help us when going about our daily activities. However, I find that when I am not connected to wi-fi, it will often log me out of my net-id even though I've selected to remain logged in. I also wish there was an option on class schedule to hide classes you've withdrawn from. I feel it causes confusion and I would love to just see the classes I am still enrolled in, rather than this yellowed-out bar telling me I withdrew from a class. I understand their purpose as a reminder, but I wish I could hide them with a tool of some sort. As always, the bus tool needs work to accurately give us times for bus arrival. Otherwise, I find it very helpful, as it gives us access to TRACS, our class schedule, and other tools that I can benefit from.
Super helpful, could still be better
I use this app every day, especially for the bus tracking! It's extremely useful having one tap access to TRACS, bobcat mail and bus routes and it isn't like most third party apps that operate poor and clunky. The exception is the sakai gradebook which will sometimes not load and once or twice this semester the bus tracking was down. Also, for some reason the 'Assignments' tab doesn't show up in the TRACS mobile view but at least you can load it like a browser and it will show up then. I would suggest as an improvement that it would be nice if the app saved which bus route I have checked between uses. It's trivial but seems like an easy fix.
Shuttles map glitch
This app is extremely helpful!! But there are a few bugs that need to be fixed asap. My campus and shuttle maps have not been working since we got back for spring semester. Whenever I try to use them it just says "an error has occurred getting this data" my locations are turned on, I've tried it on and off wifi, and it doesn't even work on campus. Now I can't see which shuttle I need to take, or where the stops are, and can't tell when the next bus will arrive.
